Yeah, it's weird how some I have to bolus for some "diet" products, but then there's things like Coke "Zero" that don't advertise as being "diet".

I always check even at restraunts or the drive-thru at McDonads. I drink diet Sundrop! It's my faveorite drink in the whole world! Except you can only find it in North Carolina. It has like one or two carbs a serving. I went to a restraunt one time and I asked for unsweet tea and the waitress gave me sweet tea instead! It was so nasty! I always have regular sodas on hand though. I usually drink one if my sugar is low and I can't get it to come back up with anything else. When I have to drink a regular soda my parents laugh at ame because I make this terrible face! Regular soda to me is just disgusting!

Casey you should try Fanta Zero or Sunkist. Those are safe to drink, no carbs. Diet Crush still has High Fructose Corn Syrup in it.

Energy drinks are the same too.  I know sugar free Redbull still shows that it has carbs and Monter's low carb obviously still has some carbs.  If anyone see's a blue Rockstar sugar free drink I recommend trying that.  It's by far my favorite energy drink.  And FYI, my favorite diet soft drink would definitely be Diet Dr. Pepper.  Can't beat it!

I'm telling you.  This drink is the bomb!!!!

Energy drinks scare me. Nothing good can come from them... Says the person who lives off of Diet Mountain Dew. However out of professional courtesy I will try to track one down and give it a shot. Not that I need any extra "energy" running in my system.

I prefer the Monster Lo-Carb drink. Its the blue cans, and I looked on the back and according to my carb ratio, I would only have to take 1/3th of a unit of insulin for it. and it tastes soooooooo yummy!

Gas stations of convienance stores.  Places like that have them.  I'm not sure if it's a certain region thing or not, but I'm in NC.  As far as the whole energy drink is concerned, haha I believe I'm building a tolerance to caffeine.  Or an addiction? haha I guess it depends on how you look at it?!?

I find it everywhere, the foodstores and most Deli's sell it. If not I go for the Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi.
